Ratnamani Agro Industries Ltd Management Discussions.


Agriculture Industry is an important and integral part for economic development of India. Agriculture plays an essential role in the process of economic development of less developed countries like India. In India, agriculture was the main source of national income and occupation at the time of Independence. Agriculture and allied activities contributed nearly 50 percent to Indias national income. Around 72 percent of total working population was engaged in agriculture. These confirm that Indian economy was a backward and agricultural based economy at the time of Independence. After 61 year of Independence, the share of agriculture in total national income declined from 50 percent in 1950 to 18 percent in 2007- 08. But even today more than 60 percent of workforce is engaged in agriculture. Because of these reasons agriculture continues to be the dominant sector in Indian Economy.


Growth in agriculture is twice as effective in reducing poverty as growth in other sectors. Though the economic growth in the other nations was below average, the Asian economies, particularly India and China, recorded robust growth. The year also faced headwinds, such as European sovereign debt crises, political upheaval in middle-east, spill-over from the Japanese natural disaster and the high oil & other commodities prices as well as monetary tightening in emerging market economies to contain inflationary pressures.


The fundamentals of the Agriculture sector continue to be robust and will drive growth in the years to come. The future of the seed industry in India is expected to be very good, with the demand for branded and quality seeds increasing. Seeds will be an important contributor to the targeted 4% growth in agriculture. Agriculture is gaining significance the world over with the rising needs from cultivation coupled with limited availability of land under cropping against the backdrop of the growing population. It is given that most

of this need will be met by increasing productivity and making efficient use of natural resources which will see more constraints into the future.

In India, the changing demographics and increasing aspirations is leading to a varied set of expectations in the farming sector. The Government too is seized of all these perspectives and is devoting increased attention to the farming needs.

Agricultural activities are still greatly dependent upon the vagaries of the monsoon and upon soil conditions, availability of skilled labour, quality inputs and farm credit. Nonavailability of adequate irrigation facilities in most parts of the country restricts the acreage and possibility of a 2nd crop in the year.

Organized retailers in India are also facing a threat from non-specialist retailers like apparel retailers diversifying into natural product and discount hypermarkets and retailers introducing and promoting their own brands at Competitive prices.
